First training with golden quartet
Klinsmann is set to enter the October A-match and will be the first to train with the golden quartet.
Klinsmann’s quartet of Asian Games gold medalists held their first training session in preparation for two October A matches.
Jürgen Klinsmann’s men’s national team gathered at the National Training Center (NFC) in Paju on the afternoon of the 9th.
The players arrived at the center at 2 p.m. and began training at 4 p.m. on the training field. Only 30 minutes were open to the media before the curtains were drawn.
Only 18 of the 24 players on the roster took the field for the first day of training.
Some of the overseas players arrived late due to club commitments. Hwang Eui-jo (Norwich City) and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) will arrive this evening, while Cho Kyu-sung (Mittwilan), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), Hwang In-beom (Zvezda) and Park Yong-woo (Al Ain) will arrive on Tuesday.
Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic), who was initially scheduled to join the team that evening, arrived ahead of schedule and trained with the team.
‘Captain’ Son Heung-min was in high spirits after recently scoring his 200th European goal.
Tottenham are unbeaten in eight games (W6 D2 L2) after starting the season at the top of the English Premier League (EPL). They have the same number of points as second-place Arsenal, but have a superior goal difference.
However, the team’s recent rigorous schedule has taken a toll on their stamina, so the focus was more on recovery.
The “golden quartet” of Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain-PSG), Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart), Hong Hyun-seok (Hent) and Seol Young-woo (Ulsan), who had returned home the day before after winning their third consecutive gold medal with a 2-1 victory over Japan in the men’s soccer final at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, were also present.

The first training session was light as most of the athletes had just competed in their respective club matches and the Asian Games last weekend.
They warmed up with stretches with physical coach Werner Reutard and then played games like running in groups of four without dropping the ball.
The goalkeepers worked separately in front of the goal with goalkeeping coach Andreas Köpke.
The atmosphere was jovial, with the players’ laughter echoing throughout the workout, perhaps due to the Asian Games gold medal.
Klinsmann was seen interacting with Coach Chaduri as he watched the players train.
In addition, the new assistant coach, Germany’s Niklas Alves, joined Klinsmann’s staff and greeted the players.
On the other hand, 먹튀검증토토사이트 head coach Andreas Herzog was unable to join the team for the October A match after his mother’s illness worsened two days before he joined the team.
Klinsmann’s side went winless in its first five matches, drawing three and losing two, before earning a 1-0 victory over Saudi Arabia in an exhibition match against a European opponent on March 13.
The national team will be looking for their first back-to-back wins in this two-match series.
In the all-time series, the team is 2-2-2 against Tunisia and 17-17-5-2 against Vietnam in 24 matches.
It has been almost eight years since the last meeting with Tunisia, in June 2015. It has been 19 years since the last meeting with Vietnam, in September 2004.
